George Washington University AGPCNP - FALL 2014

  1. Hi, has anyone applied/been accepted to the Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program starting Fall 2014?

    If so - have you heard anything yet? Anyone know what kind of "stats" GWU looks for re: years of and type of experience, GPA, etc?

    And better yet, is anyone enrolled in this program? Any/all insider comments welcomed! Seems like a great program...?

    I just finished my application for this program. I know they extended the deadline to March 31st. However I don't know how long it will take to hear back. It seems they are quick with responding from reading other threads on GW NP programs. I really hope I get in because this is my number 1 choice!

    RN2FNP2B weren't you going to be going to Frontier? I was reading some other threads.

    I have applied to GWU for the AG-PCNP 2014 Fall. I wonder if it's a good sign that they extended the date to March 31st?

    I was sad I missed the GWU deadline....I accepted and sent $ for an alternate program (the program is good, but GWU was my first choice). And now I hear they extended the deadline.. I just cant win. :/ Was the deadline extended for FNP as well?

    Not for FNP program, only ANP program to end March. Not sure if you can apply for ANP and switch later to FNP.

    I applied March 15 and received an acceptance letter April 11! My GPA is about a 3.4-3.5 and I've been a nurse for 12 years. I took graduate Pharm and Patho (as a coursework-only student ... they call it CWO) at UMD Baltimore to get a jumpstart on the program and to lighten the full-time load. This was recommended to me by a GWU APRN student who was doing clinical hours at the hospital where I work. I'm glad I took her advice because it probably helped me get in (since there's nothing spectacular about my GPA or application!) I think a lot of nurses look to this site for advice and to gauge how competitive programs are so I wanted to share my stats and "strategy." I will add that the application was lengthy - not hard, just long and time consuming so you would want to start it a good month or two before the deadline. Good luck to all

    Hi Capelove: Do you know if UM offer patho and pharm in the summer? How was the class set-up online or hybrid?
